There are many reasons why your home may have a weak signal strength. It may be your carrier’s lack of presence in the area, a rural setting, mountains and dense forests blocking cell towers, or a highly populated area that has many people fighting for the same signals. Whatever the reason, a cell phone booster not only improves the signal strength of your phone, which means better call clarity, faster browsing, and a stronger battery life for your cell, it can also help to improve upload and download speeds on your computer and the streaming services on your TV. When it comes to technology, faster is almost always better and boosters are all about speed. That’s better.

Most homes can benefit from a signal booster, but there is a way to check your outdoor signal. Android phones use the LTE Discovery app to test signal strength, while iPhones use the Field Test Mode. Strong outdoor signals are over -70dB and weak outdoor signals are -80dB, and we’ve included boosters designed for both scenarios in our list below. Homes with weaker signals require an outdoor antenna that covers more space and we’ve included three boosters below that can boost a signal between 1,500 and 5,000 square feet.

Having a low signal strength means dropped calls, crackling audio, slow streaming, download and upload rates, but that’s not all. Low signal strength can also be a drain on your phone’s battery, forcing the phone to work harder to find an available signal, while continuing to search for the signal for the duration that cell data or on WiFi are being used. A booster enables your phone to easily find the signal, giving its battery a break and extending the charge life of your phone up to two hours of talk time in some cases.

If you’re ready to give your phone, computer and TVs a break and want a more seamless experience with streaming and cell data, we recommend adding a booster to your home.

  

1. weBoost Connect 4G Indoor Cell Phone Signal Booster

Boost your LTE and 3G signal up to 32 times faster than before with the weBoost Connect 4G Indoor Cell Phone Signal Booster, which has a massive range of up to 5,000 square feet and the ability to give your phone two hours more talk time on a single battery charge.

Pros: The weBoost Connect 4G Indoor Cell Phone Signal Booster provides a considerable improvement to cell phone and internet service in low signal areas, with the ability to work with any carrier. The weBoost Connect can improve the signal for a 5,000 square foot space (based on a 5-bar strength, this area goes down if fewer bars are available in the outdoor signal), improving performance up to 32 times, including fewer dropped calls, better audio quality on phone calls (up to 65 dB), and faster uploads and downloads on phones, computers and while streaming on the TV. The improved signal will also create a longer lasting battery life for your phone, with the kit including an inside and outside antenna and a Connect 4G booster.

Cons: The weBoost Connect is priced significantly higher than the other options on this list. Some customers found the installation instructions to be confusing.

2. weBoost Home 4G Cell Phone Signal Booster

Rid your home and small office of drop spots with the weBoost Home 4G Cell Phone Signal Booster, which can improve the signal performance for two rooms and works with every carrier network.

Pros: Like the weBoost Connect, the weBoost Home also improves connection rate up to 32 times for fewer dropped calls, faster upload and download speed and more audio clarity. The Turbocharger enhances internet speed and boosts 4G, 3G and LTE signals while also providing two extra hours of talk time for your phone battery.

Cons: The weBoost Home has the smallest range out of all three options at 1,500 square feet.

3. SureCall Fusion4Home

Designed for users with mid-sized homes or office spaces, the SureCall Fusion4Home can cover 2,000 square feet and increase signal strength for multiple users simultaneously, regardless of their career.

Pros: The SureCall increases signal strength for texts, calls and 4G LTE signals for all carrier networks and reduces the number of missed or dropped calls due to weak signal. It can also help to improve the battery life of a cell phone with its omnidirectional antenna. The kit includes an outdoor Omni antenna, indoor whip antenna, RG-6 coax cable (50 ft) and AC power supply.

Cons: The SureCall is better suited to areas that have a weak indoor signal inside as opposed to outside. Some customers note the SureCall would be easier to use if the cable was longer and more durable.
